SBS Tanks® named Exporter of the Year


SBS Tanks®, a premium product made by SBS® Water Systems (Pty) Ltd, has been named winner of the
Medium Category at the 16th edition of the KZN Exporter of the Year Awards, presented by the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) and Transnet Port Terminals (TPT). The awards highlight successful exporters in KwaZulu-Natal and were adjudicated by an independent judging panel and audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

As winners of the Small Category in 2014, SBS Tanks have subsequently achieved tremendous growth over the past two years, resulting in their advancement into the Medium Category in 2016.

According to SBS Tanks® managing director, Delayne Gray, winning this award is testimony to the company’s progressive growth. “Winning this title is a huge accolade and is affirmation that the various investments made by our company are being acknowledged on a broader level. As proud members of the DCCI we recognise the vital role that exports play in the growth and development of our economy, having greatly invested in our manufacturing facility over the past eighteen months in order to increase production to service both the local and export market,” said Gray.

Using advanced design facilities and a team of inhouse engineers and specialised project managers, SBS® tanks are suitable for the harsh South African climate and are ideal for export into Africa and worldwide. The company remains a preferred supplier in the municipal, mining, fire, food and beverage, agriculture and water conservation industries.

Mava Gwagwa, SBS Tanks® New Business and Key Accounts Director, explains that the result of recent investments has seen a progressive effect on transformation both internally and externally. He said, “Our investments have resulted in a positive effect on transformation in terms of employment, job retention, upskilling, infrastructure and the local economy as a whole. A key component of our export strategy is the knock-oneffect on job creation, capacity building and globalising a local, Proudly South African brand.”

As a Proudly South African company with more than 18 years’ experience in the water storage industry, SBS Tanks® have their roots firmly entrenched and invested in our beautiful country and are proud of their significant contribution to the global water storage industry.

“The significance of taking a business from humble beginnings into the international arena is proof of strategic business focus, sound business principals, high customer focus and continuous research and development,” concludes Gray. 
